REPORT: Leyton Orient 0-3 Grimsby Town

11 March 2017

GRIMSBY Town picked up their first away win in five games as they comfortably beat relegation-threatened Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road.


The Mariners, roared on throughout the game by more than 1,000 travelling supporters, took the lead with their first real attack as Sam Jones headed home from Danny Andrew’s cross.


The home side had plenty of possession but struggled to seriously test the Town defence and when a Callum Kennedy own-goal doubled the visitors’ advantage 19 minutes from time, the points looked safe.


A third goal from substitute Scott Vernon then put extra gloss on the scoreline as the Mariners put an end to a run which had seen them lose three and draw one of their previous four games on the road.
